Ph.D. Program

Welcome to the Current Ph.D. Students section of the UW-Madison Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders Web site. We are delighted that you are completing graduate work in our department.

Our Ph.D. program allows you to develop an individualized program that leads to a research career. You may choose a major emphasis in:

  • Normal aspects of speech, language, or hearing; or
  • Speech, language, or hearing disorders.

Because our program is mentor-based doctorate, you will also work closely with faculty to conduct research in addition to your course work.
